About this Event
The University Graduate School supports postgraduates at the University of Birmingham. We offer a variety of academic, social, and wellbeing activities throughout the year. We're running events throughout Welcome for postgraduate taught students (PGT) and postgraduate researchers (PGR). This event is for PGRs - look out for our other events in our PGR Welcome Collection!

Being a PhD researcher is a hugely rewarding journey in many ways, but can also involve challenges. Any questions or concerns you have will be shared by others, so talking to fellow researchers and members of staff can help you on your PhD journey.
At PhD Chat you can meet other PGRs, ask questions and learn more about support that is available, whilst also sharing your own experiences and helping others. Each session involves an introduction to a specific topic related to pursuing a PhD, followed by informal group discussion and experience sharing.
This PhD Chat is for all PGRs who want to meet their fellow researchers and share some common concerns, so whether you're just getting started with your PhD or you're deep in writing up, come and have a chat over a cup of tea or coffee!

Westmere is located next to Winterbourne House on Edgbaston Park Road (G15 on the ).
